Sprout Vegan Cafe Review
Whether you’re vegan, health-conscious, or just looking for a filling, healthy meal, Sprout Vegan Cafe in the Wailea Gateway Center has it all.
This polished cafe is one of the latest entirely plant establishments to open on Maui. What’s more, Sprout is owned and operated by two young local entrepreneurs, Lily Freeman and Seagar MacDougall.

Both born and raised on Maui, certain dishes at Sprout reflect their upbringing in the islands. I tried the kimchi fries- crispy fries piled with kimchi, sriracha aioli, furikake, and green onions. They were very similar to hurricane fries, a popular local treat, and so so ono. I also took note of other local-inspired dishes like the tofu poke bowl, Huli Huli bowl, and haupia. If you are a vegan or vegetarian visiting the islands, Sprout is a great option to taste some local flavors.
Sprout offers indoor and outdoor dining, as well as take-out. The service is always very friendly, and the staff is happy to answer any questions. You’ll often find the owners behind the counter or cooking in the kitchen.
One thing that especially makes Sprout stand out is its commitment to using fresh local ingredients. By using produce grown on Maui, Sprout is taking meaningful action to rely less on imported foods- and you can taste the difference in their fresh produce as well.
(Please note that Sprout’s indoor dining area is temporarily closed at the time of writing, and all live music events have been put on hold due to the current Maui County mandates. We hope to see things resume as usual once restrictions are lifted.)
Located on the patio at Mahalo Aleworks, you’ll find Upcountry Sausage Co grilling up made-to-order sausage sandwiches piled high with a range of toppings and mouthwatering sauces.
This is the best pizza we’ve had on Maui. Restaurant Marlow is owned and operated by Maui chef Jeff Scheer in Pukalani, Maui.
